With Halloween just around the corner it’s time to start dreaming up some costume ideas. If your kids are like mine, they will likely change their minds about what they want about 23 times leading up to the day. So you should have a few different options up your sleeve! Since most of us have a couple of boxes lying around at all times, some ideas for cardboard box costumes are good to have on hand. Most of these you can whip up using only scissors, string and paint!

I’m a big believer in the homemade Halloween costume. And not just because I’m an avid crafter and any excuse for a project will do!
Creating a costume can be a family exercise in creativity. Get everyone involved and the kiddos can have a little pride in a costume they helped make. Store bought costumes tend to be cheaply made and will fall apart half-way through the trick or treating anyway.
Yes, I understand that cardboard box costumes aren’t going to last more than one night either, but at least they required a little imagination and effort. You’ll be making memories to last a lifetime!
Because you’ll always remember the year that little Johnny dressed up as a washing machine!
